6th Workshop on Vision and Language (Call for papers)

4th April, 2017
EACL 2017 Valencia, Spain + Google Map

The 6th Workshop on Vision and Language (VL’17) At EACL’17 in Valencia, Spain Call for Papers Computational vision-language integration is commonly taken to mean the process of associating visual and corresponding linguistic pieces of information. Fragments of natural language, in the form of tags, captions, subtitles, surrounding text or audio, can aid the interpretation of image and video data by adding context or disambiguating visual appearance. Labeled images are essential for training object or activity classifiers. Visual data can help resolve challenges in…

Call for papers: Special Issue IEEE MultiMedia: Vision and Language Integration Meets Multimedia Fusion

1st June, 2017

Call for papers   Multimodal information fusion both at the signal and the semantics levels is a core part in most multimedia applications, including multimedia indexing, retrieval, summarization and others. Early or late fusion of modality-specific processing results has been addressed in multimedia prototypes since their very early days, through various methodologies including rule-based approaches, information-theoretic models and machine learning. Vision and Language are two of the predominant modalities that are being fused and which have attracted special attention in international…

IbPRIA 2017 Tutorial: “Structured Representations for Text and Images”

20th June, 2017
IbPRIA 2017 Faro, Portugal + Google Map

Frank Keller (iV&L Net committee member - WG1 Deputy Leader) will give a tutorial at IbPRIA 2017 in Faro, Portugal. Abstract To achieve natural language understanding, the analysis of the syntactic and semantic structure of text is required, and a long tradition of research in this area exists. In this tutorial, I will argue that image understanding (working out who does what to whom in an image) also requires structured representations. I will discuss recent developments in methods for discovering…

CVPR Workshop on Language and Vision

21st June, 2017
CVPR 2017 Honolulu, HI United States + Google Map

Call The interaction between language and vision, despite seeing traction as of late, is still largely unexplored. This is a particularly relevant topic to the vision community because humans routinely perform tasks which involve both modalities. We do so largely without even noticing. Every time you ask for an object, ask someone to imagine a scene, or describe what you're seeing, you're performing a task which bridges a linguistic and a visual representation. The importance of vision-language interaction can also…

Multimodal Spatial Role Labeling @ CLEF 2017

11th September, 2017 - 14th September, 2017
CLEF 2017 Dublin, Ireland

The task of spatial role labeling (SpRL) formalizes the spatial concepts and relations in the language to be mapped to qualitative spatial representation using machine learning. The main goal of multi-modal SpRL is to explore the extraction of spatial information from two information resources that is image and text. This is important for various applications such as semantic search, question answering, geographical information systems and even in robotics for machine understanding of navigational instructions or instructions for grabbing and manipulating…

ICCV Workshop on Closing the Loop Between Vision and Language

29th October, 2017
ICCV 2017 Venice, Italy + Google Map

The scope of this workshop lies in the boundary of Computer Vision and Natural Language Processing. In recent years, there have been increasing interest in the intersection between Computer Vision and NLP. Researchers have studied several interesting tasks, including generating text descriptions from images and videos, language embedding of images, and predicting visual classifiers from unstructured text. More recent work has further extended the scope of this area to combine videos and language; learning to solve non-visual tasks using visual…
